Fashion, This Is A Special

#hardcore95, works as the title, mood and a graphic for STILL ILL‘s FW 16/17 capsule collection. There’s a mid-90s general feel to the pieces and inspiration spans from Belgian gabbers and hardcore punk to the cult movie The Doom Generation, which turned 20 last year. A desire to mix the digital and a more manual approach translates into hand-drawn graffiti written directly on patterns, so they follow the shape of the garment and mix with the graphics, and a DIY section of hand-bleached denim with patches. Posters from  the seminal Gregg Araki movie are also cut up and pasted into collages to create prints for tunics and tops, the lo-fi mood of ripped and glued paper heightened by the extreme enlargement of small low quality digital images. As a whole a rougher and tougher look that nods to Stephen Sprouse and his luxe-punk aesthetic but with a cheaper, grungier 90s feel and a touch of digital reappropriation.

The collection is already available for press at Maximilian Linz PR even though more customized pieces will be presented in a few weeks. This will be the last STILL ILL capsule to have a seasonal denomination and will be on sale online during MFW.
